How will this address the needs of people with mental health issues?


25% of the funds generated by Prop C would address needs of people with mental health issues. The funding in our measure for mental health and substance abuse treatment can be broken down into two types of services: 1) street-based care and addiction medicine, and 2) the provision of care inside residential facilities. The system would gear up, with a steady expansion each year, until it reaches the capacity of serving an additional 4,500 individuals, designed to ensure severely mentally ill and drug addicted people can recover.
